A fire on the Texas A&M campus forced the shutdown of some roads, including the ramp at University Drive and Wellborn Road.

College Station Fire Department said the fire started in the Bell Building shortly before 9 p.m. It was out in about 20 minutes, and according to officials on the scene, the fire was contained to one room.

Smoke and flames could be seen coming out of one of Bell's windows.

Although the fire department on the scene said the fire started on the second floor, University Police confirm it started on the first floor.
Pending an investigation into the cause of the fire, the first floor of the Bell Building will be closed Monday.

No injuries have been reported.

The first floor of Bell is home to Health and Kinesiology according to the A&M website. The second floor has the English Language Institution and the PPRI Survey Research Laboratory.
